Cement Patio for Hot Tub advice


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am getting estimates for my new patio for my 3 seater hot tub. It's going to be about 10x8 feet. The hot tub will measure around 7x5.5 so I think that it big enough.  Besides the patio being level and at least 4 inches thick or more is there anything else I need to request? I was concerned about water drainage so he gave me two options. Here is his quote if I pay cash.

$1095 Concrete pad only

$1215 including Cut lines

$1450 with 2 drain and pipes

I use a 20' RV hose to fill/drain mine.  All you need is long enough to get to a grassy area or drain. (and to a spigot to re-fill.)

I was mainly worried about rain and it puddling up on the patio but it is going to be 6 inches deep and well above the ground so no worries. Excess water should just fall off, I am also going to put a roof over the patio to give more protection from the elements for my hot tub.

Mine is sitting on an 8x8 concrete pad, poured 5" thick... my wife and I poured it ourself one evening.... $145 for the concrete mix and I already had a portable mixer from Harbor Freight. It was a lot of work, but worth it over contractor prices.  We've had no issues with water pooling, and it is level.
